North America’s most renowned rib cookers will be on hand.

Rib lovers rejoice; the inaugural Comox Valley Ribfest is coming to the Comox Valley Exhibition Grounds, Sept. 18-20.

The Ribfest will feature up to five of North America’s top professional cooks, better known as “Ribbers”, who will tempt your taste buds with delicious sizzling ribs and mouth-watering sauces.

The lineup of Ribbers includes Boss Hogs, Misty Mountain, Smoke & Bones, Gator BBQ and Prairie Smoke & Spice BBQ.

For detailed information on these Ribbers, please go to our website: comoxvalleyribfest.ca

In addition to the Ribbers, other vendors, including several local producers, will offer a variety of fresh and flavourful food items.

Admission is by donation. Food and drinks payment will be made directly to the vendors.

Ribfests are not just about eating.  There will be great live entertainment all three days on the Comox Valley Dodge – 97.3 The Eagle Main Stage featuring several of Comox Valley’s finest local musicians, as well as other performers.  Among these are Ray Materic, Emily Spiller, The Annie Handley Band and many more. There will also be a “Fun Zone” and donkey rides for the kids.

Car enthusiasts, you won’t want to miss the Classic and Custom Car Show on Sunday from 10  a.m.-3 p.m.

Ribfest will be an open format allowing families to sit together enjoying free “live” entertainment and a fabulous meal; and, while the kids enjoy a juice or water,  adults may partake in a glass of beer or wine.

Beer will be available from two great microbreweries, Big Rock Brewery and Hoyne Brewing Co., while 40 Knots Vineyard & Estate Winery will feature their locally-produced selection.

By texting in your favorite Ribber you have a chance to win the “People’s Choice Award”, a $500 gift card to Canadian Tire.

This exciting event will bring three fun-filled days to the Comox Valley.

Hours are: Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Proceeds from Ribfest will support Rotary Club of Strathcona Sunrise local and international projects.
